UGH! Worst year on record- that is something most people can agree on.

I am committed to ending the year with a few wins. I have had some success so far this year-

~have not touched a soda since New Years! WooHoo!
~ got in 10, 000 steps every single day in may and June
~ learned a new job and am working from home

So, I have proven to myself that where there is a will, there is a way. I have also gained more weight than ever before and am dangerously close to 200 pounds. Also proof that I am a big bag of emotions and this year has been hard and food has been my happy place.
I have stayed away from Spark because I knew I could not give 100% to my teams and my friends ...but there is wiggle room between 0 and 100%. I am back for me- and love my friends for just saying "welcome back". Spark people are THE BEST PEOPLE!

So here I am- committed to two challenges- an 8 week challenge that will force me to start tracking again and being accountable and a 100 rep per day for the last 100 days of 2020 challenge. I have done these challenges before and have succeeded. This year, more than ever, I want to focus on success so that I do not look back on this year without knowing I did my best and not only survived it, but also came out better and stronger!

9/21/2020 starts the 100 day countdown for anyone who wants to also add this as their rallying call!

    So Good to see you Blog again!!

    It looks like you have had some good accomplishments this year!

    I am glad you took the leap to come back. There aren't many active teams like there used to be. Not sure if it's 2020's insanity or what.

    Excited to cheer you on & poke or prod -- whatever it takes to make our goals!

    Hugs & Prayers

    Super that you are back and doing positive things for yourself. Yes this year is a stinker!!!!!! Stressful and lots of anxiety, yet we can all take better care of ourselves in many simple ways and just do what we can, with the challenges of covid. I know you will make your goals just keep pushing a little each day.

    Hugs and smiles
